Armoloq Manpack Battery System 1280

Offers the field operator the option to have a compact and fully contained battery solution for your VHF/UHF/GMRS radio.  The battery cover is designed to allow direct mounting of a UB1280 sized battery to your TPA with the battery compartment providing protection for the battery, as well as a stable platform for orienting the radio in an upright position.

The battery mounting lid is manufactured out of .083 formed Kydex, and the battery compartment manufactured out of .090 formed Kydex.  All components are manufactured in the US.

If you need additional battery mounting lids, please email us and we can provide pricing and lead times for those seperate units.  A use case for that scenario would be utilizing one battery compartment across multiple radios.


*TPA, radios and other components not listed below are sold separately.

*You will need an Anderson Power Pole connection on the power cable of your radio or a jumper with your radio's specific power connection and Anderson Power Poles on the battery side.

*None of the packages listed below include a battery.  We recommend Dakota LiFePO4 7Ah or 10Ah; you can find them here-

 L- 5.940 (151mm)
